Happy start of Fall! My second favorite time of year. I love pulling out all the sweaters, fuzzy socks and fluffy blankets from my closets. I feel inspired in the kitchen. Primarily because it’s the beginning of soup season and Thanksgiving, which is my absolute favorite holiday, is right around the corner. While I’m not a fan of earlier nightfall, I love the mix of urges to begin hibernating more while also still enjoying time spent outdoors. Warm days and cool nights; it’s truly the best of both worlds, in my opinion!
A focus I’ve promised myself this season is strengthening my self-care rituals and healthy habits. With holiday season just around the corner and a new grandchild arriving soon, life will be busy so I want to be incredibly dialed in to the habits that help me feel my best before the whirlwind begins. When it comes to caring for my mental health, I’m a firm believer that being proactive is the best approach; making intentional choices that help me remain in a grounded place.
